're saying. you have dick durbin, who is very close to the president, saying, he can live with means testing medicare. he said he doesn't like it, but he can live with it. that's high on the list of things that leader macomedy has said he's got to have to have a deal. and even nancy pelosi has said, look, this is not about rates. it's about revenue. it's about getting the money we need in order to reduce these deficits. so you've got to have spending cuts and you've got to have some revenue to get this done. >> schieffer: let me ask senator simpson. the "new york times" crunched numbers for the tax inn creases for the wealthy and determined even if the rates go back up to the clinton-era rates it would only give us about a quarter of the needed revenue. so what other things can be done? what other taxes have to be raised or where do you get the money to get us to where we need to be? >> well, you go into the tax code, as i say, but it's going to take too much time to do that. but there is no possibility to do this, not a single economist who talked to us in our hearings, said we can't grow o
